Title: Mike's FOD memorabilia
Post by: mike siegel on December 20, 2010, 03:50:40 PM
guess I'll keep on posting some posters & photos...

Here's the bigger part of my FOD collection. I'll start with
ITALIA. 2-foglio (100x140cm), locandina & 8 photobusta (2 still missing).
They all date back to 1966 when most of the FOD so-called 'first-release'
material was printed. It is all the same styles and design as printed
in late 1964, but because it was released so poorly in the beginning,
naturally there wasn't much material printed. When the film became
a hit, this stuff displayed here came into action (still very hard to find & expensive):

I'll continue with the Spanish material:
The scarce first release poster, followed by the 1972 poster &
complete lobby card set. Then there is the 1981 lobby card set
(using frame enlargements). I'm not sure 1965 lobby cards do exist.

(http://i953.photobucket.com/albums/ae15/peckinpah69/leone/spa1981.jpg)

The third co-production country: Germany.
Here's both 1-sheets + a complete set of 24 lobby cards.
followed by the RR 1-sheets for 1971 & 1981. (for both re-releases
12 and later 16 lc's from the 1964 set of 24 cards were re-printed.
So 8 cards of the first release set are quite rare since they were only
used in the 60's).

Now England & the US. Still waiting for my first FOD posters :(
Should have bought them 25 years ago, when the prices were still reasonable :)
At least I got a lot of stills.
Here's the UK Front of house set + the US lobby card set (11x14).
Followed by some of my b/w stills and some rare behind the scenes stills.

Now for se French release:
I have no idea what the first release material does look like.
Would be cool to see something (anybody?).
I have this great 120x160cm poster from the late 60's and
some rare lobby cards. Some said they are first release, but I'm
not so sure. Then there's the nice re-release set from the early 80's,
the poster for that release and the Belgium re-release poster (early 70's).

Some more stuff:
the Argentinian first release poster, the Yugoslawian poster,
the brochures from the US & Germany,
the German 12-page program, the Austrian 4-page program
and the German Super-8 cover (1972),
I'll end with the 70's Mexican set of 8. I'm not sure whether the film
was released there in the 60's:

Boy, I consider myself as a real fanatic of Leone's westerns. But after seeing your memorabilia  O0, I feel quite downgraded.  ;D

Great stuff.  Some of the drawings sure don't look like Clint Eastwood !!!  And in the following capture it sure looks like a still from the cemetery in GBU !!!
(http://i953.photobucket.com/albums/ae15/peckinpah69/leone/french-70er.jpg)

Obviously a re-release poster....

Very nice collection.............I remember having the pamphlet on the synopsis for FOD back in 1966..........Brings back memories............where do you keep posters and cards ?? under any special conditions ?


Title: Re: Mike's FOD memorabilia
Post by: mike siegel on January 12, 2011, 03:02:13 AM
No, just stored in envelopes or plastic to protect it. Until the early 80's almost all promo material
was delivered folded, so that helps. Storing unfolded posters I don't really like, uses so much space
and it's hard not to add little damages over the years.
Italian material has a special place, won't fit on any shelf :)

Needless to say, this continues to be one of the very best threads on the board. Thanks heaps, Mike! O0 O0 O0

Mike,

Was any of your material used for the Leone exhibit in the Gene Autry museum back in 2005 or 2006, and/or Frayling's book ONCE UPON A TIME IN ITALY which was the companion volume to the exhibit?


Title: Re: Mike's FOD memorabilia
Post by: mike siegel on December 17, 2016, 12:37:28 PM
No,
I know Sir Christopher, he has enough LEONE items, he wouldn't need mine I suppose :).

In fact I wanted to make a LEONE book for years, using my 1000+ posters & photos etc.
But I'm out of writing film books. To painful to make, no money in it... can't afford that any longer.


Title: Re: Mike's FOD memorabilia
Post by: dave jenkins on December 17, 2016, 12:54:46 PM
Understood. Bookmaking has to be a labor of love; the money, if there ever is any, is secondary.

Which is why most of us, who need to earn our livings, can't afford such a time-consuming hobby.

I thank you very much for your Steve McQueen book, though. It continues to provide me with a lot of pleasure.

I'm quite proud of the McQueen book. But it is the main reason why I don't continue (maybe a last PECKINPAH book in Japan),
there were too many McQueen books before ours - though none about his job - acting :) , I lost money with that one.

... maybe a last PECKINPAH book in Japan...

So what's the latest on this? I remember you mentioned it a while ago.


Title: Re: Mike's FOD memorabilia
Post by: mike siegel on December 19, 2016, 07:44:26 AM
Oh not much really. The first publisher went out of business, the second one fell ill... but all good things are three: I'm gonna ask my Japanese distributor, maybe they have an idea...

Well, keep us posted. Your German Peckinpah book is great as far as I can appreciate it given the language barrier. My Japanese is far better than my German (although that's not saying much since my knowledge of German is terrible ;D)
